Josquin Des Prez (±1450-1521): Ave Maria a4

Josquin’s four-part setting of the Ave Maria was hugely influential. Josquin makes heavy use of duets and trios to develop his sequences and musical phrases. His fellow composers were much taken with it among them Ludwig Senfl who wrote a six-part setting based on it. Enjoy :-).
